We use our CLIC values to help us to learn to the best of our ability. We believe that every child has the right-

C– to be a confident communicator

L– to learn

I– to improve their health

C– to be part of a community

At Netley Abbey Junior School, these ideas underpin all of our learning.

If you would like any further information about our curriculum, please feel free to talk to our class teachers in the first instance who should be able to answer any queries. Alternatively, you can direct any questions to Mrs Rosie Earle, Federation Director of Teaching and Learning.

Parents’ Guide to Grammar

In the link below you will find a user friendly guide to the different grammar terminology your child will be familiar with. Although it is split into year groups, you may need to look at the year group before for skills originally introduced in previous years. We hope that this is a helpful tool for supporting your child with their homework.
